Sills & Betteridge LLP has started its new financial year on a high with four promotions.
The firm’s leadership development programme recognises the talent and dedication of its people; those who have demonstrated loyalty and commitment, shown a flair for managerial responsibilities and assisted with the development of the firm.
This year’s appointments were again drawn from a range of practices. Lincoln-based family lawyer Jessica Firth-Brown has been promoted to partner. Jess joined Sills & Betteridge in 2012 later qualifying with the firm and becoming a highly skilled child law solicitor. Alan Rousseau, a residential property executive specialising in new-build conveyancing in Gainsborough and Katherine Wenham a wills, trusts & probate executive in Lincoln were given associateship. The firm also recognised the contribution made by an employee in a non-legal role, making its head of marketing, Jennifer Lowe an associate.
Chief Executive Martyn Hall said: “Progressing to partner or associate is a reflection of many years of hard work. Each of our four new partners and associates joined the firm over 10 years ago, some at the very start of their careers. I am delighted that they have reached these career milestones and look forward to them continuing to play major roles in our future success.”
The promotions mark the start of another exciting year for the firm as it looks forward to further development of its newly acquired offices and the imminent relocation of its Thorne team to larger premises on Fieldside in September.
